Find out if you’re complicated like Cornett or intimidating like CARSA
Do you associate every inanimate thing with a sign in the zodiac like I do? It’s okay, that’s normal (I think). Ever since I was a teenager, I have been fixated on astrology. My mom is a psychic and hypnotist, so astrology was the only logical choice for me to follow in her footsteps. With that there is no better person to analyze your birth chart, or for now, just tell you what UVic building you are. So keep reading to find out whether you’re complicated like Cornett or intimidating like CARSA.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Aries is the first sign in the Zodiac, which is fitting as they love to be number one. This fiery sign is bold, ambitious, passionate, and they tend to make confident leaders. Because of this, Aries is the Business and Economics Building. These upbeat rams tend to be social animals, which will come in handy at those famous business “networking” parties.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
This earth sign is ruled by Venus, and as such, Tauruses are known for being the most sensual sign in the zodiac.

Being an earth sign, this bull can feel the most at home outdoors and knows how to get shit done, making them the Bob Wright Centre.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
One of the most underrated signs in the zodiac, these air signs are both playful and curious, but known to be two-faced. Geminis are symbolized by the celestial twins meaning they’re simultaneously interested in many different topics, hobbies, careers, and even friend groups. Which may be the reason why they have a dubious reputation. Geminis are playful and intellectual, and because of their many interests, they align best with the MacLaurin Building. Housing both the Faculty of Education and the School of Music, this building is also juggling multiple interests, just like these twins.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
These sensitive water signs are known for their maternal sides, making them more domestic than the other signs. This makes them the Sedgewick Building. Tucked away in the trees, this building is home to the Equity and Human Rights department and Occupation Health, Safety and Environment. Cancers love to create safe, personal sanctuaries, and tend to adopt a more caregiving role, which is why this cozy building is perfect for Cancer.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)

The last of the fire signs, Sagittarius, is the adventurer of the zodiac. Represented by the archer, Sagittariuses are always on the fly like the arrow shot from a bow.
